Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling (sometimes called treatment, talk therapy, or psychotherapy) happens face to face, in my office.  Individual Counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support, experience growth, and discuss challenging issues.  Discussing challenging issues such as trauma, anger, depression, anxiety, and career changes can be quite helpful.  It allows people to work through painful memories, identify aspects of their lives they want to change, better understand themselves, and set personal goals. Counseling also allows people to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors.

Online Counseling

Online counseling or telemental health is individual counseling via video conference.  You may be in your car, office, or home.  I will be in my office.  All videoconferencing is conducted through a telemental health technology system that complies with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). It provides you with the same benefits as individual counseling if you:

  1. are a healthy candidate for online counseling
  2. live outside of the Columbus, Georgia area
  3.  physically cannot drive to my office because of physical limitations
  4.  have limited time available i.e. you only have your lunch break available

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Coverage Parity laws require most health plans to apply similar rules to mental health benefits as they do for medical/surgical benefits. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions of your insurance provider:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
